Cyndi Girardet---Watercolors Nov. 4,-Nov 25, 2012--reception Nov. 4, 1-3 PM refreshments served
Upon moving to Cranbury, New Jersey with her husband, Wayne, and their two children in 1982, she took a short hiatus from her painting to restore their c. 1826 home, teach music at Princeton Montessori School, and sing with Princeton Pro Musica. In 1992, she reentered the art world with a one-person, sell out show at Tucker Anthony in Princeton.
In 1995, she retired from teaching to concentrate on saving their historic home by moving it to a new location in Cranbury. With the completion of that project, she again began dividing her time between her watercolors and her musical activities.
In the late 1990s, her artwork hung in Holsome Teas & Herbs on Nassau Street in Princeton for eighteen months. Most recently, she has displayed paintings in Garden State Watercolor Society shows, the University Medical Center at Princeton, at the opening of Princeton Fuel Oil’s new headquarters and at the International Headquarters of Johnson and Johnson in New Brunswick.
Since moving to New Jersey, Ms. Girardet has participated in workshops with several prominent artists including Earl Lewis, Robert Sakson, Gail Bracegirtle, nationally acclaimed watercolorist, Don Andrews and most recently Lian Zhen. She has also done a number of works on commission. Her specialty is painting old houses, farms, and buildings with a voice from the past. When not singing or painting, she enjoys gourmet cooking, gardening, traveling, needlework, and playing the piano. More importantly, she takes great pleasure in spending time with her five grandchildren and their parents, as well as her husband of 43 years.
The artwork is for sale with 20% of each sale going to support the Cranbury Arts Council and its programs (see www.Cranburyartscouncil.org). Cash or a check made out to the Cranbury Arts Council is accepted as payment.
